Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Putnam District Curriculum
Students will participate in coursework from mathematics, English, science, social studies, visual arts, music, physical education and technology at the elementary, middle, and high school level. Expectations, in language arts, include being able to write informative (explanatory) pieces with this type of organizational structure and narratives with events that are sequenced appropriately, descriptive details, character dialogues, and a sense of closure. Students write both over long (research, reflection, and revision) and short timeframes. They will become more advanced at reporting on topics and telling stories, being able to present in various formats.
Honors or Advanced Placement coursework is available at the high school level for those who qualify. The district supports the career and college readiness initiatives for its students by creating programs that allow students to have pre-professional experiences. The electives are also designed to help students identify and pursue areas of personal interest.

Testimonials and Case Studies from Our Parents
SchoolTutoring Academy has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.
My daughter was very self-conscious about her difficulties with the math section of the SAT. SchoolTutoring Academy’s Academic Directors created an action plan that boosted my daughter’s score and confidence level.
SchoolTutoring Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades. Test Prep Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades.
SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points
My son’s math marks in high school have always been weak so I found it very beneficial that his ACT tutor worked on solidifying his fundamentals while prepping for the ACT.
SchoolTutoring Academy gave my daughter the confidence she needed to boost her SAT score Thank you!
SchoolTutoring has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.
My daughter was able to improve her test scores after a few months of tutoring with SchoolTutoring. However, while raising test scores is great, the real payoff is in the self-confidence that she gained.
I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank-you! My son is very impressed with his tutor and looks forward to each session. What’s particularly amazing about this is our son has never really looked forward to math or school for that matter!
We are so happy with the results of your tutoring program and academic support. Homework time was such a stressful evening for the entire evening before we brought your tutors into our home. Thank you for all your help!
Our daughter, a first grader, struggled with basic reading and handwriting. When she began with SchoolTutoring she was almost a year behind her class. Within a year of being enrolled, she is reading above her grade level and has the confidence to match.

Chalk Talk: Tips for the SAT and ACT
Good news for those students who have heightened fears and irrational thoughts when it comes to those pre-college tests such as the ACT or SAT. Some colleges have opted out of taking either test and are making it optional for students. Using other factors such as grade point averages, writing assignments, and teacher recommendations as the basis for acceptation, some liberal arts schools are no longer using these scores as part of their decision-making. The SAT will now let you decide which scores you send. Before the SAT would require that schools saw all scores, but now the SAT allows students to pick which scores potential colleges see, so don’t stress about that rough test date. Changes are coming to the SAT that might be in your favor. If you prefer to justify your response rather than fill in bubbles and blanks, then the changes may assist in your college requirement testing! These changes go into effect in 2016. Don’t let these tests cause you too much stress during such an exciting time in your educational career!
